Building a Better Mousetrap – The Glory Days of an Under-Appreciated Dominant: A Deck that Countered Everything

This article is probably going to be one of my shorter ones, not really because I don’t have the time or energy to do a longer write-up, but more because I don’t necessarily remember the full story. After all, it was 11 years ago that the story takes place. That’s right, this edition of BaBM will take you way back: to a time before AUtO, Thaddeus, and The Garden Tomb; before the Dominant Cap and Rescue Rule; and probably, for most of you reading this, a time before you even knew there was such a thing as Redemption.

Early on in the process of creating this latest set, it became clear that we needed to ‘spread the wealth’ a bit in terms of the cards printed.  We had created an awesome new type of card, Territory-Class Characters, which had artifact-level effects printed on characters to make them more versatile, useful, and allow us to flesh out themes a lot better and easier.  However, while several evil brigades got their own versions, only clay had thus far received cards in this new category of character.

As a group, we agreed that we needed to print some Territory-Class Heroes in other brigades, and particularly a few for some O.T. themes.  But who to choose?
